Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed here for four nights in February in the Sterling Room. The Old Bank building was built in 1909 and there are three rooms upstairs in what used to be the bank manager’s residence. All three of the rooms face onto the main road but we didn’t encounter any major noise issues.

The Sterling room is the only room with an ensuite. The other two rooms have their own bathrooms but they are across the other side of a common corridor.

The Sterling room was on a corner of the building and was very bright. Our room was a good size and was very tastefully furnished with a queen sized bed (very comfortable), bedside tables and lamps either side of the bed, a lounge chair, a bar fridge, a foot stool, full length mirror, a wardrobe (with bathrobes), a chest of drawers that the TV sat on top of, an electric fan and other charming touches like the water jugs with flowers.

The bathroom stretched down the side of the building such that as you walked in the large vanity (plenty of room for toiletries) was on the left then a large walk-in shower (pressure good) and then past the shower the toilet. There were a couple of windows in the bathroom that let in the light.

The room and bathroom were very clean.

Access to the upstairs room was via an internal wooden staircase from the cafe (22 stairs) or via a steel fire escape type staircase (25 stairs) at the back of the property that took you to the car park. There were three car spaces for guests.

The tariff included 2 x $20 vouchers for breakfast each day in the Conservatory Cafe which was attached to the B&B and was very good.

There was also a beautiful lounge area downstairs where you could sit and enjoy a meal or a drink, read a book or play a game.

Unfortunately the WIFI was poor notwithstanding the efforts of our delightful host Peisha who provided us with a couple of different networks used by the cafe. All of the staff that we encountered in both the B&B and the cafe were excellent. Friendly, welcoming and helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again and recommend it to others.

We would though offer some small suggestions. Perhaps another chair, tight fit but maybe in lieu of the foot stool, and perhaps insect screens on all of the windows rather just a couple.

We stayed three nights at The Old Bank in Cygnet in a spacious room that was tastefully decorated in a contemporary style with a nod to the history of the building. The bed was large, comfortable and felt luxurious with the high quality linens and plump pillows. The Conservatory Cafe offered a delicious breakfast each morning and was handy for coffee and beautifully presented cakes throughout the day. We preferred to stay at this wonderful heritage building in Cygnet and make the trip to Hobart for the day as this offered a tranquil setting for exploring the Huon valley and a visit to Fat Pig Farm on other days. In all, a fabulous experience!

We were lucky enough to spend a week in this stunning building full of original features and character. They styling is immaculate and the attention to detail by the owner is inspiring. Easily one of the most beautiful places we have stayed, our room was perfect. With the view of the lit up church through our window at night we could believe we had travelled overseas. The bustling cafe downstairs is situated in a gorgeous atrium and the food is fresh, colourful and well prepared. The coffee is world class, we would come back just for the coffee.
The owner took us in at short notice when our home flooded and we are so grateful for the hospitality, it made the process of getting back into our home so much less stressful. We wish this business all the success in the world as it is so deserved.

There is no doubt that this is a beautiful property and the cafe thrives and rightly so. The accommodation upstairs consists of 3 beautifully appointed rooms, decorated with style and comfort.
Obviously it would be nicer to stay in the one room with the ensuite in the room but the building is original and the renovation has been executed with thought and is attractively designed; the bathroom across the hall was also beautifully appointed and decorated.

Sharon tries very hard to make you feel welcome and explain all that comes with the accommodation. It was also great to be able to park in the rear of the building.
My only small constructive criticism would be about space to put things. Every single surface top in the beautiful bedroom has something on it - vases, ornate perfume bottles, trinket dishes, lace doilies and yet more vases with fresh flowers.

Whilst these are very pretty and make for great instagram shots, there is nowhere to put your handbag or rest anything as I put the ample amount of cushions and pillows onto the chairs in the room (as I loathe putting pillows on the floor) so that makes things a bit tricky.
It is the same in the bathroom - there were things on top of the toilet cistern and the top of the sink area was covered with more glass trinkets and bottles, etc.

And whilst it was simply lovely to have a kettle and cups, etc., in the room, they weren't near any power point at all, and we had to string an extension cord from underneath the bed across the room.

I definitely think the space would benefit from a few tiny things like more places to put the simple things travellers need, e.g. bathroom bags, make-up, purse, phone, etc.

In the days when this was a bank it was rarely a welcoming event to have to see a bank manager. However, walking into the building now we were given a delightful welcome from Isabel. Over the next 18 hours we relaxed in comfort with everything one would expect in such a beautifully restored and meticulously thought out conversion. The aroma from the Huon valley apples in the bowl outside the room added an extra feeling of warmth. The full breakfast of ‘Eggs Benny’was perfectly prepared and served and filled us up for the rest of the day. When we left it was very apparent that many others had discovered the cafe as it was as full as Covid 19 would allow. It means a 50 km drive from Hobert for a Sunday brunch, but as the drive is through such beautiful countryside we will be putting this onto our stay at home and spend itinerary.

A two night stay in the Sterling Room - which was beautifully comfortable and well equipped. Such lovely friendly staff and though travelling alone, I felt very comfortable and welcome. The guest sitting room with open fire is very cosy and welcoming and preordering some of the delicious in house prepared dinner a must, rather than venturing out on a crisp Cygnet night!

We travelled from hobart excited to try the old bank cafe in cygnet. With my husband and baby we arrived and service seemed good and we were seated quickly. Menus got dropped off and water. Then that was it, no one came back to take our order so we figured it must of been a order at the counter kind of place. So my husband ordered up at the counter for us. We waited a while for our coffees which went to the wrong table firstly and then made our way to our table with the waitress saying ‘oh we lost the table number’. Then I said we had food on that number so are you able to check with the kitchen if they had our order. Without any follow up about the docket, we waited & waited. Food was not coming out, so I asked one of the waiters how long our food would be. He checked and came back explaining that we were 4 dockets away. Still waiting two tables next to us arrived and ordered from the table with the waiter, which was annoying as we didn’t get any table service at all. Then we waited some more. Meals started to be brought out, however they went to the table that had just ordered. I was mad about that. Then more meals came bypassing our table straight for the other table next to us! I was so amazed that this had happened as they both had ordered after us, finally I asked again and the waiter said they are coming and offered us free drinks or our money back as we had already paid. We refused drinks and thought maybe we would get our money back. We finally got our food but as the lady dropped our meals off she said “sorry it’s been a wait but everyone has been waiting, it’s just been busy”- very rudely. Well if that was the case that would of been fine but it wasn’t- we were waiting the longest and by the time the food came we didn’t even want it as our baby was well and truly ready to get out of that place. We ate our meals quickly which were nice but as we left we didn’t get an apology or a refund as mentioned as we walked out the door. Very rude and bad service. Wouldn’t recommend.

We spent 3 great nights here. The staff were extremely helpful and provided excellent service. The room was nothing short of superb. The location was ideal for visiting the Tahune Airwalk and taking a trip up the river on the sailing ship Yukon both of which I can heartily recommend.

Our first stay back at my birthplace at this property and how pleased we were, the arrival welcome personified our two night stay, Isobel a gem and invaluable part of the business.
Our room was perfect, beautifully appointed with all knick knacks, bikkies by the bed, tea and coffee plus wines outside your door, bathroom beautifully presented just across the hallway, not a problem. The roaring fire in the lounge with a Mulled wine in hand was all you could ask for.
Sharon the owner is so friendly and professional in all aspects of running this vibrant and happy business, the constant vibe in the Atrium from friendly patrons speaks wonders for the experience we enjoyed, we'll be returning, Mark.

We spent an enjoyable two nights here in delightful accommodation. The staff were very friendly and ready to assist in every way possible. The a la carte breakfast was delicious, with plentiful choices and accompanied by excellent coffee. We were impressed with the excellent variety of wine and snacks that were available for in house residents. Well recommended.

Sorry guys, I cannot add anything further to the above answers, unless you take an Uber or taxi which would work out very expensive
